    It was a strange release this^ one... Within days of them hitting the shops in Japan, Yahoo was awash with them but they wern't sizing mistakes they were all NWT in all sizes from numerous sellers.. I remember sending a Yahoo link back in April to b_F for the Edo-Ai Type1 so he could complete the tux.. NWT for 140euro ($165) Madness!

    That went smoother than i was anticipating @julian-wolf i was in a minor bidding war for my incoming pair of M41030's i was prepped to go higher but not necessary.. Looks like you landed your pair unchallenged...

    WAYWT 2020 (Denim Edition)

    The house is fine, it's an old Victorian cellar with no damp course so the water just drains away, there are a lot of underground streams nr us so some folks have standing water in their cellars, ours is pretty dry in comparison, apparently Fullwood comes from the Ye'Olde English foulwood so it would have been swampland at some point. Work on the other hand.. my landlord had all the flashing replaced around 15yrs ago and within weeks some dirtbags nicked it, trashing the asbestos guttering when they climbed up so it floods all the flippin time he won't replace it again because when he bought the building in the 90's he had the opportunity to buy the lease for £12,000, chose not to because it only cost a couple of £100/yr and it was on a very run down industrial estate, fast fwd to now it's it's prime real estate in the middle of student-ville, the Church Burgess trust won't even consider selling the lease so in effect he owns the building but not the land so in 32yrs time the ownership reverts back to Church Burgess, they could even force him to remove his building from their land at his cost so there goes his little retirement nestegg...

    We had crazy storms in the night, probably the worst ive seen in the UK.. i got up at 2.30am to watch the lightening and sandbag the cellar.. got to work at 6am and my workshop was flooded yet again so ive spent the day shoveling wood shavings onto the flood water to soak it up, got home and pumped out the cellar, great in 34° heat! Fucking climate change! i might have to import some jeans from Japan to cheer me up

    Sounds to me like they've really enjoyed the time you've been spending in the spare bedroom and want it to continue..

    If you're picking the arcs to fool yourself that's fair enough but nobody in the real world is going to think that you're walking down the street wearing 12 grands worth of vintage Levi's, 99% of peeps who see the Levi-esque arcs would assume you're wearing highstreet Levi's or LVC ...so you buy high quality made in Japan denim and pick the arcs to make them look like low quality made in Turkey denim

    Ive been thinking about repro arcs recently.. as vintage Levi's move ever further away from my price bracket into the realms of nouveau riche bragging tokens and in the meantime LVC become increasingly shite what am i actually trying to emulate by picking arcs?.. i appreciate that some WH arcs are primed for the picking and look terrible in their own right but to pick something like Deer Hunters, Ground Alls, ect ect i would now consider sacrelegious, they're as lovely in their own right as a collectable pair of rare Japanese denim as what you're/they're trying to imitate.

    What are your jeans doing today?

    Put my name down for the first pair of Isle of Eigg jeans! unintentionally wonky of course.. once you've honed your craft i'll lose interest

    Warehouse too, the anniversary pairs were fetching 40-60,000¥ 8yrs ago.. probably more nowadays, not to mention the sub-brands I watched 2 pairs of deadstock Western River W501XX sell on Yahoo back in 2016, the size 27 sold for 76k and the size 29 sold for 90k...

    Yup give it a go, you've got nowt to lose... it would also be handy to put a drift punch on the back of the rivet so you get a nice clean strike, a piece of 8-10mm metal bar would do the trick. If you're not happy with the results simply drill out the center of the rivet with a 3mm drill and it will just fall off and you can have another go with the replacements from WH, if they sort you out.
  21. Check out Crocs, they're the exact same thing but much cheaper ..forget all that #mocsandsocks pricking around on instagram #crocsandsocks is the future!

    If you do the exact opposite of what you're suggesting you should be fine Place the front part of the rivet over the pin, holding it in place and turn the jeans over onto a solid, flat piece of wood and twat the rivet from the back with a hammer, for added security, turn the jeans back over and hammer the pin flat from the front.

    Superdenim Specific Music Meta Thread...

    Ive been firmly stuck in a Disco/Larry Levan phase for the last few years.. Im also a big fan of tracing samples back to their origins which often takes me down odd musical-wormholes, discovering Cal Tjader via Midnight Marauders for instance or Throbbing Gristle via Dilla
  24. Don't count on RMC for longevity, i own 4 of them and 3 out of the 4 have blown thread in the high abrasion areas, the seam at the cuff and under the sleeves wich rubs against the seam at the hem where your arms come into contact as you walk are all dotted with holes where the overlock has disintegrated. ..you can poke your finger through these holes, which is a shame because the fabric is lovely and the fit is just perfect but the thread quality is appalling, and certainly not worth the premium.
